Sims sells 100 million units -- and owes me money
The Sims Is A Global Cultural Phenomenon In 60 Countries And 22 Languages Thanks To Players of The Sims Everywhere
That's the headline of The Sims' (a label of Electronic Arts) press release today, celebrating 100 million units sold around the world.
As my little girl, Mackenzie, is addicted to Sims and owns EVERY game, starting with the first one sold in 2000, I figure EA could spread the joy and send us a royalty check.
Sixty percent of gamers are girls, and EA was one of the first companies to clue into this. By allowing users to create their own characters and worlds, it's created a wonderful virtual world for my baby. She loves designing new houses and cities for her lucky Sims family. Her latest game? Sims2 Pets.
While I don't think a check is forthcoming, as a special thank you to players of The Sims, you can visit The Sims 2 on April 16th to download a "complimentary exclusive outfit for your Sims in honor of this milestone."
Party down, Sims!
